I'm posting this in behalf of my father. I am their legit daughter. And it so happened that recently, my father (a senior citizen, with no permanent job) told us the news that he got a woman pregnant (the woman is currently 24y/o, but was 20-21y/o back then.)
Now the thing is, I just found out that this woman has been asking financial support from my father for 3 years now - WHEN SHE DOESNT EVEN HAVE ANY PROOF (not even a simple dna test!) that my father is the father of her kid.
What's worse is, my father as stated above doesn't have a permanent job, and has been fully dependent on me for the bills and expenses at home, so all this time, part of the money I've been giving him for the past 3 years goes to that woman!
Now, my questions are:
- Can I tell my father to stop supporting that kid because that woman could not prove that it's his anyway? (she's 21 back then, and my father will be 70 in a few years! anong klaseng babae ang papatol sa ganun katanda if it's not for the money? tell me!? mamaya sa iba pala yun and she's just using my father for the money)
- This woman is just a labandera (based on what my father told me), so she said, she can't afford the dna test - if ever I decide to shoulder the dna testing, and got proof that my father is not the father of his kid - what specific case can I file against this woman for using my father and extorting money from him(/me)? would this fall under extortion? anything else I can file against her?
- In case dna test proves that my father is not the father of her kid, what case can I also file against this woman so that she returns all the money I've spent for the dna test and all the money my father gave her for that kid?
I have also tried searching and in case that the dna test proves that the kid is not my father's, I was wondering if what she did could fall under the following?
